The Secondary Education Teaching Certification (Grades 7-12) is dedicated to providing instruction in educational theory balanced with current classroom practices. The curricula have even developed to reflect the general standards and specific program guidelines prescribed by the Pennsylvania Department of Education. The program focuses on a values-centered approach toward the preparation of caring, uniquely qualified candidates to address the needs of diverse populations in today’s schools. The Secondary Education Certification curriculum prepares students to teach in one accomplished content area (English, Social Studies, Math, Biology, or Chemistry). Students can also choose to pursue their Master of Education degree after they complete their teaching certification coursework at Alvernia.
Students can choose to take classes where and when it is most convenient. This program is offered on campus at our Reading, Pottsville and Philadelphia locations.
